Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2021, Chris Heston threw 3,061 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2014 and 2017, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2017, he relied primarily on his Sinker (87mph), also mixing in a Slider (76mph), Fourseam Fastball (88mph), Curve (72mph) and Change (80mph).


In 2017, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His slider comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2017) comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2017) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, has below average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
